Lincoln High School's water project aims to alleviate local pollution

Published April 22, 2009 - Tallahassee Democrat
A barren stretch of land tucked in the rear of Lincoln High School's campus has been transformed into the state's first storm water treatment facility at a public school.

A retention pond will collect runoff generated from the school. And the efforts will help alleviate water pollution to Lake Lafayette in eastern Tallahassee and Wakulla Springs, said Sean McGlynn, a water-quality specialist who teamed up with Lincoln teacher Elizabeth Spike on the idea.
